Subject: Converting HTML to RTF


The other week I asked about converting HTML to RTF in order
to make a WP document.

I received two responses:-

1. Internet Assistant for Word 6.0a on Windows

Located at in the directory
  /deskapps/word/winword-public/ia as wordia.exe

This works fine, except I want to do the conversion on 
Unix or Macintosh.

2. A tool called "GF" from someone called mike.

Mike, can you post details on where to get this tool.
Is it perl, C or what?

Many thanks.
